Euclid Farmers' Market Opens June 2
The front of Shore Cultural Centre transforms into an assemblage of food and craft booths on Friday, June 2, with opening day of the Euclid Farmers’ Market. The market will run from 3:00-6:30pm every Friday until October 2. A variety of vendors will be present selling fresh produce, baked goods and handmade crafts. Anything sold at the market must have been grown or fabricated in Ohio.
The Euclid Farmers’ Market has graced the front grounds of Shore for a number of years making it a traditional place to meet neighbors, buy healthy products and enjoy the musical entertainment. Local musicians, Bill Hatch and Albert Dennis, will be back along with the addition of folk singer/songwriter Sheela Das. Plans are in the making for additional forms of entertainment and surprises.
Past market attendees will surely welcome the return of Burton Floral & Garden, Becky Ziemba and Applecross Garden for their fresh produce and flowers. Becky is always happy to share her gardening expertise with customers. Craft vendors will include Artisans’ Treasures, Saranghae Candles and White Crane Designs. Andie, of White Crane, produces unique items from recycled glass as does Alsie of Artisans’ from old jewelry and decorative objects. Black Walnut Bakery returns with Darryl’s tasty array of breads and cookies. Chef Cheryl is making plans to set up her mobile kitchen and cook up her acclaimed recipes. Cheryl is always glad to share her recipes and cooking tips with others.
“We want our customers to trust the Euclid market in providing first-rate vendors and artisans”, said market manager Jim Spittle. “The market is member of a local co-op of farmers’ markets that support healthy and quality products and personal customer service. This is truly Euclid’s local market.”
Over the summer, and new to Euclid Farmer’s Market, will be the phasing in of acceptance of the Ohio food assistance program SNAP. Certain vendors, such as produce sellers, will be allowed to accept SNAP tokens which can be purchased at the Customer Service table. The Produce Px program will be offered, again, if funding from the county so allows. For more information, visit the customer service table at the market beginning June 2.
